The Outsider

An adaptation of Albert Camus’s novel

The Arab falls dead…

Meursault is in jail.

The judge visits him and can’t accept that Meursault doesn’t believe in God.

He calls him “Mr. Antichrist”.

Marie visits once, but after that she can not visit him again because they are not married.

When the trial begins, the court room is packed.

All the witnesses testify against him.  The prosecution states that he deserves to die.

When they ask him about his motives for killing the Arab, he says that the sun blinded him.

Meursault is found guilty and is to be executed.

The priest visits 3 times and Meursault, who is a non-believer, refuses to see him.

When the priest finally talks to him, tries to force religion on him.

He gets angry and yells at the priest that nothing matters, and he can’t prove that God exists.

Meursault waits for the guard to come and take him to be executed.
